YURU-CHARA Festival in Hikone, Japan

Currently All Japanese PMs are really into making a character of their town which promotes the town and bring tons of tourist. You might think it's not gonna work, but it is working pretty well in Japan.
These characters are called "yuru chara" which means a uncool character. "Hiko nyan"is the most successful one as he hosts the festival at his town.

Here is Hiko nyan. Lovely pose.

















Then here's the festival video...

Baby christening Gift

It's my friend's god daughter's christening gift.

Her name is Natasha. so I draw her first letter and every thing baby girl would love..
Princess, sweets, flowers, butterflies, birds and bees...
I wish Natasha will grow up like a princess.

I remember I was a kid who's thinking of the life after death while pulling off insects legs and flooding water into ants nest.
